shopping

Day in Bristol

So I went to Bristol with my mum and sister to do some shopping and it was a very eventful day! When we got to the park and ride it was pouring with rain, so we put our hoods up and raced to the indoor part in wait for the next bus. When we finally got on the bus he charged mum £3, which we thought was awfully cheap! Turned out children go free and he’d thought I was a child and only charged for mum, even though I’m 20!

We sat on the top deck of the bus and my sister pointed out a spider next to me. It was orange and kept coming down on it’s web, before sliding back up. I was terrified and pretty much sat on my sister’s lap, until some lady got off the bus and walked into the spider. God help her when she realises that she has an orange spider on her scarf!

The first shop we went to is Blue Banana. NEVER GO THERE WITH YOUR MUM! Every time I picked up an item of clothing, I would see my mum give a silent shake of her head. I gave up on clothes and ended up buying bright pink hair dye instead!

Mum decided that we would go for tea and were on the floor with all the restaurants on without telling me. Due to this I got onto an escalator to go down to the clothing shops and heard mum shout, “Where are you going?” I had to run back up the escalator, looking like an idiot, in front of everyone. Mum thought it was hilarious and said she hadn’t seen me run so fast before. We ended up in Nandos because we’d never been there before. Seriously guys, what is all the fuss about? I didn’t think it was nice at all. I didn’t like the taste of the chicken, the burger was tiny and the only thing I enjoyed was the drink refills and the halloumi I paid for to put in my burger.

We finally got to Primark, where my sister decided (as you do) that she needed a wee, in the one shop we’d been in without toilets. I rushed her to the cafe in Primark and turns out you need a code to get into the toilets, which you can find on a receipt if you buy something. After Nandos my wallet is pretty empty so that’s not happening. I finally have to leave the store and take my sister to a three story Marks and Spencers, where the toilets just happen to be on the blimmin top floor!

Finally, we decide to go home. Waiting for the bus, it is pissing down with rain and I finally get a smile on my face after the lady next to me offers me her Radley umbrella!
